AAIDD Virtual Professional Development Opportunities:
Exclusively for AAIDD Members

 
Offered at no cost to AAIDD members only. Registration is on a first come, first served basis.

  • Crucial Conversations - monthly 45-minute small-group dialogues with AAIDD thought leaders on emerging issues and responses from the field.
  • Attendance is limited to 15 AAIDD members
  • The format is a brief presentation from the host followed by discussion with participants ("conversation" is in the name!)
  • Are not recorded to encourage frank discussion
  • Are designed to provide access to emerging knowledge and effective responses

We suggest registering early because these will fill up fast. We will do our best to maintain a waiting list, and ask those whose schedules change to let us know so the seat can be filled from the waiting list.

"A deep dive into what's happening now and what's working."

  • Mentorship in a Minute - monthly 30-minute talks with AAIDD members across the career spectrum on professional or career development issues that they’ve learned “the hard way” so you don’t have to.
  • Attendance is limited to AAIDD members
  • The format is a brief presentation by the host followed by discussion
  • Are not recorded to encourage frank discussion
  • Are designed to provide access to information that will help participants succeed

"This is peer mentorship at its best: colleagues mentoring and being mentored on career-related topics."
